Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Release Date, Specs & Features: More Leaks Suggest Type-C USB Port, More Powerful S-Pen
More leaks revealing some of the amazing features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 spread over the Internet less than a month ahead of its official unveiling in August.
The images which were first revealed by the iGyaan Network on Tuesday imply that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be boasting a similar design to that of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Quite interestingly, the renders also show an S-Pen stylus which the outlet said is totally different from its predecessors.
Apparently, the S-Pen for the Samsung Galaxy Note S7 has improved capabilities thanks to its new Bluetooth LE version that provides more usage time and accuracy in terms of proximity warnings. Its version of the Air View window also has a new Dictionary as well as a voice command feature.
This is probably Samsung's way of making the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 stand out. It may also be the Korean company's way of removing the previous flaw in the S-Pen where the stylus jammed in backwards due to its push to eject mechanism in the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, per GSM Arena.

According to Mashable, the renders from Evan Leaks are not only "official-looking" but also considered fairly accurate considering the tech enthusiast's history in revealing factual information. In fact, Evan Leaks had previously predicted that Samsung will be skipping the Galaxy Note 6 altogether in favor of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
Under the hood, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is said to run by a Snapdragon 823 SoC chipset for United States. Meanwhile, the global version of the device is expected to carry an Exynos chipset.
Other Samsung Galaxy Note 7 specs include an iris scanner, a USB Type-C port, a massive 4,000 mAh battery, and an IP68-certified water-resistant body.
